2017 Eastern White Pine Graders Competition
September 9 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm| $25
The 14th Annual NELMA-sponsored Eastern White Pine Competition will be hosted by Robbins Lumber Company on September 9 at Searsmont, Maine.
The Individual Competition will continue the Tournament “Knock-out” Bracket Format. Each grader will grade a set number of boards within a specified time limit, with winners advancing to the next round. A “Consolation Round” guarantees each grader will participate in a minimum of two rounds of grading. Cash awards will be presented to the top 8 graders.
The Team Competition for the coveted Bronze Hammer Trophy concludes the day’s activities, with representatives from each mill grading a final set of boards to determine the trophy winner.
The Grader Competitions are a great way for individuals within the lumber grading profession to meet with their peers in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere, while learning more about the grades of Eastern White Pine!
